This book (as some other reviews have pointed out) is a little deceiving. The book consists of a whole collection of entries across the Bond films up to 2006. It can be on-set photos, publicity shot and even concept work and film set photographs. It would be a gross injustice to call this a scrap book but in places it does. What does not help is that a lot of the images are not clearly referred to, the dialogue on the page is not clearly directed towards a particular photograph and in some cases ...more

Some of these comments are interesting, some are self-serving, some are totally irrele ...more

A definitive collection of photos from all the Bond movies (up to Casino Royale, that is) and nicely put together. Rather than being a narrative on the art of making Bond movies, we get quotes from the people that actually worked on them. From directors to set designers to editors, they share their experiences on creating the most successful film franchise of all time. Just one disappointing feature is that none of the quotes come from the actors themselves. It would've been fun to hear from the ...more
